Three reality break-ups: Lauren and Jason, Kristin and Brody, and The Barkers
The gods must be angry, as three reality TV couples have broken up nearly simultaneously. The Hills’ Lauren broke up with Jason, Laguna Beach’s Kristin Cavallari and The Princes of Malibu’s Brody Jenner have split, and Meet the Barkers couple Travis and Shanna are done.
Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler broke up just a few weeks after we saw her choose him instead of her career on the season finale of her new show. Lauren’s rep told People, “Its true. Lauren broke up with him last week.” They previously broke up last August, and then reunited, so perhaps they’ll get back together and split up yet again, timing their reunions and break-ups to whatever new projects they’re working on that need publicity.
Lauren’s Laguna Beach co-star Kristin Cavallari has broken up with cancelled, staged reality show cast member Brody Jenner. People reports that they “met through Laguna Beach costar Talan Torriero, originally broke up in the fall, but got back together shortly afterward.” There seems to be a pattern here.
Finally, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker filed for divorce from his wife Shanna. The couple’s relationship was profiled on MTV’s series Meet the Barkers. “My only concern right now is for the welfare and best interests of my children,” Shanna said in a statement.
